Singer/songwriter CAROLE KING has announced plans to take her life story to Broadway.
The Grammy Award winner is teaming up with theater bosses to present Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which is due to open next spring (14).
The production will feature a book by Douglas McGrath and include details about King's personal and professional life, including her marriage to her frequent collaborator Gerry Goffin.
A statement from the star reads, "What's so great about this for me is that musicals were a major influence on my songwriting. In fact, when Gerry and I first met, we made a bargain that I would write music for the Broadway show he wanted to write if he wrote lyrics for my rock 'n roll songs.
"The songs took off, and the show idea never came to fruition. Now that our songs have merged with a Broadway show, we've come full circle."
